Art, real estate meet at LLNYC bash

Artist Domingo Zapata welcomes crowd at his Gramercy Park triplex

There’s no need to hit the Chelsea galleries to find good art — at least there wasn’t last month. Domingo Zapata’s 6,500-square-foot, art-filled home was the scene for a summertime bash hosted by Luxury Listings NYC, published by The Real Deal, which featured the artist on its July cover. Keller Williams NYC and the Bracha Group sponsored the event.

Media personalities, musicians, reality stars, actresses, writers, real estate executives and brokers filled Zapata’s home, taking in the artwork in his second-floor ballroom-turned-studio, sipping cocktails and eating gorgonzola-and-pistachio-covered grapes.

The Spanish-American Zapata, who was commissioned last spring to paint a mural on the High Line, receives media attention for the star-studded, salon-style soirees he holds at his home, and has sold his art for six-figure sums to the likes of actor Leonardo DiCaprio, business mogul and philanthropist George Soros and legendary basketball coach Pat Riley.

“I like to do smaller get-togethers,” said Zapata, who was getting ready for an exhibition of his work in Mexico City. “A lot of friends come by all the time. I have an open-door policy.”

Here are some of the faces in the crowd:
